Thomas, first of all I want to thank you for being a great G-pop to our 2 sons. Watching soccer games, coming over for dinner and attending the “show” afterwards. They will always remember you their on Christmas Day opening presents, walking with them on Halloween and helping with math homework. Susan and I will miss you, as you were called home too soon. I know you have been reunited with Johnny and Barbara whom you missed so much. You lived your life your way and had a great time doing it. Rest In Peace Thomas, Love Baccala.

Tommy and I went to St. Raymond School together. We were in the same class. We used to play together first grade through fifth grade. I have fond memories of us on Woolston Avenue. He was a tough kid and I was naive. He taught me street smarts. I miss those days.

Miss you dad

Dad, thank you for being my coach, mentor and confidant. You taught me more about what not to do to keep me on the right track, I’ll never forget that. But most importantly, you were always there to listen, good and bad! Thank you, I love you
